Equipping, Encouraging and Enabling People to Worship and Honor God

Letter of Welcome

On behalf of the Music and Arts Ministries at Shady Grove, I would like to extend to you the opportunity to find your place of service in the many choirs and ensembles for children, youth, and adults that are offered. It is my hope that once you find your place, you will be encouraged to discover the ways that the music and arts ministries can enhance both your spiritual life and help you grow in your faith. Whether vocal or instrumental, traditional, blended, or contemporary, there is a place for you at Shady Grove to connect and serve God!

Serving Him Together,
Rev. Sylvia N. Cooper
Minister of Music and Arts

Music and Arts Mission Statement

We believe that the music and creative arts ministries are powerful ways to worship and serve God in building God’s kingdom. It is our hope that opportunities to serve Him in the music and arts ministries at Shady Grove will not only offer to others a stronger relationship with Christ but will ignite you to “’go and make disciples,’ and to spread the news of His love, hope, joy, and peace.
